I ordered these and they arrived to my address in the UK very promptly.
Thomann were very competitive and I have come to find them nothing short of miracle workers when it to customer service - not that you'll need it! Every dealing I've had with Thomann has been faultless.
Anyway, the pick ups...
I ordered these, amongst other upgrades, to slot in to my Squire P Bass Custom. Please be aware, this started life as a passive bass and these are active electronics. Some issues have to be over come to allow for such an upgrade, such as easy battery access. As such, these didn't slot straight in, but that in no way reflects on the product. If you were fitting to a bass that already has a similar arrangement, I imagine that you'd be able to it with minimal fuss.
I had to make some modifications to the body. The stock pick ups that these babies were replacing were slightly thinner, so the pick up recesses had to be fettled a little to accept the new pick ups. For the battery access, I cut the pick guard in a couple of straight lines, using the split pick up as a guide. One line straight down, the other towards the neck, so the pick guard is now a two piece pick guard. Under the now removable part of the pick guard, I routed a recess for the battery. The battery can them be replaced by removing a few screws. Not ideal, but a pretty simple solution to real problem without having to fit a battery cover.
After some fettling, fitting the pick ups was a doddle. The no solder system is really easy and connectors are good quality.
As for the sound, I don't think I've played anything better. It seems that just about any sound you desire. The range is outrageous. The EQ goes from deep, deep down to high and mighty with ease. The active citcuit requires no grounding to the bass hardware, so there is absolutely no hum.
In surmise, this product is peerless. I'm a very happy boy.
I fitted this as an upgrade (along with an EMG BTS System) to my Epiphone EBM-4 bass. The original setup utilised passive pickups with active electronics. The pre-amp board went on the original, so I decided to overhaul.
Instant new bass, I'm really happy with the results. The sound quality is far superior compared to the original setup.
I opted for an 18v power configuration, this required a little soldering. Well worth opting for the higher voltage supply as it ensures a really strong signal.
Pros: Quick Connect system makes installation really easy Very clear instructions The bass is absolutely silent, no more hiss or hum.
Cons: Pickup sponge/cushion not provided - simply took it off the old pickups.
Advise: Cable routing is largely pre-defined, as the quick connections dictate the direction and orientation of the cabling. This can be mitigated by proper homework and preparation. Check the dimensions of your existing pickups with the dimensions in the instructions. Check the location and positions of cabling routing holes from the pickups into the control cavity, so that cables don't get pinched.
Verdict: I'm very pleased with my purchase. It arrived on time and allowed for a hassle-free installation. A quality product, would highly recommend this.
